Fantastic lookout for views of Vancouver. Not too bad of a drive, about half way up the mountain. Easier and better than going all the way up to Grouse Mountain

This park is very close to my house, and I go here often. If you hike far enough, you can get to a set of waterfalls, which are definitely worth it. If you like beautiful nature trails, nice views, and peace, you need to come...More

We stopped on our way to Whistler. It is a really quick stop but well worth it if the skies are clear. Great views of downtown Vancouver.

It was a pleasant drive up, but not steep mountainous terrain. You could see all of Vancouver! The water, ships and the housing and high skyscrapers. The trees were so tall, more than I had ever imagined! It was all breathtaking! I was in awe...More

Hiked the first summit along the howe sound crest trail, which would normally have amazing views. Unfortunately all the fire smoke in the air washed out all visibility beyond the cliff. Hike was challenging, lots of rocky bits with many overgrown roots. Took us about...More

Pretty nice views but nothing out of this world. It's possible that for more spectacular views you need to do some hiking.

This Park is situated halfway mount Cypress. The views are just breathtaking. When you drive up to the park you have to be aware of cyclists who are cycling on the mountain. This is a very nice park an absolutely worthy of a visit

We were bought here by family we have in Vancouver. We came here in the evening hoping to catch the sunset from Barrett's View. It was a scenic drive and we managed to get night views of the city.
